Simone Hooymans

visual artist

Simone Hooymans (*1974), is a visual artist from the Netherlands who lives and works in Norway. Through drawing and animation, she creates elusive yet disturbing landscapes. 

She is a graduate of the Art academy for visual art in Arnhem (Artez) and Breda (St.Joost) in the Netherlands.
Simone Hooymans creates experimental animations based on a hand-drawn world which she combines with digital animation techniques.

The works of Hooymans manifest the effect of human relationships with nature in various ways. The source of her inspiration includes landscapes, climate change and our constant struggle to understand the world.
Hooymans creates synergies between innovative music and art with her animations and video installations. She has collaborated with several Norwegian musicians and has participated in a series of international group exhibitions and film festivals, like Ars Electronica, Dutch Film Festival.
In 2017 she was part of both the Vestlandsutstillingen and Statens Høstutstillingen (State Exhibition) in Norway.
